Morse code training update 2

We are six weeks into the course and today was an important day in the life of a morse code student. As of today we are supposed to recognise and send all letters, numbers, some symbols and some prosigns. In my reading and sending practice i have gone from 20 to 23WPM, just because i feel more comfortable at that speed.

Sending is good although i still have some issues with some character combinations. Copying is a bit harder. I still need to hear the words a couple of times to be able to copy them perfectly.

As of today we are going to do mainly callsigns and QSO practice. Still simulation, not the real deal yet, but i don’t think it will take long before we can go on the air.

The most important revelation for me is that everything still feels easy. I don’t have that feeling of anxiety i had in the previous course with Las Tortugas. And that was at the same speed as we are doing now. With Las Tortugas i was asked to practice at 20WPM and i suffered a lot. That was the main reason i quit that course. Now i am at 23WPM and i still feel fairly comfortable with it.

We keep going!!

BTW, what do you think about my new UR5CDX CT755 Single Lever Paddle?
